Whitney Houston’s Death Ruled An Accident

According to E News online, the pop icon’s death will be ruled an accident. The pop icon’s sudden death on Feb. 11 is expected to be officially ruled an accident, a source with knowledge of the ongoing investigation confirms exclusively to E! News.

And that appears to be just what those close to Houston suspected would happen.

While the actual cause of death was temporarily listed as “deferred” on Houston’s death certificate pending the result of toxicology tests, “nothing suspicious” has been found to connect any physicians or other people of interest to Houston’s case and the inquiry is nearing completion, the source says. Plus, “she had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself.

Sources have told E! News that Houston had prescriptions for antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, and a handful of pill bottles were reportedly found in her room at the Beverly Hilton, where she was found dead in the bathtub.


National Enquirer Leaks Photo Of Whitney Houston In Coffin

Did someone in Whitney Houston’s camp sell this photo to the National Enquirer or did her family flat-out sell the photo to the Enquirer which is why the viewing was made private?

The national gossip rag displays a photo of the pop icon lying in an open coffin wearing a purple dress on the cover of this week’s issue. The photo is believed to have been taken inside the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, NJ where her family attended a private wake last Friday.

No word on how much the magazine paid the insider for the photo.


Preliminary results show anti anxiety drugs in Whitney’s system

Preliminary blood test results revealed the presence of benzodiazepines in singer Whitney Houston’s system after she died, according to Radar Online. The benzodiazepines found in Whitney’s system — Xanax, Ativan, and Valium — are sedatives prescribed for high anxiety and stress disorders associated with depression. Some benzodiazepines are highly addictive.

Houston, 48, was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her luxury suite at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday. She was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics at 6:55 p.m. EST.

A law enforcement insider told RadarOnline.com: “The final toxicology results will reveal the specific sedative(s) that she ingested, and the level. Those final toxicology results should be in later this week.”

The law enforcement source also corrected a fallacy that is commonly quoted to the media by coroners — that toxicology test results take 4-6 weeks to come back.

Toxicology testing and results don’t take 4-6 weeks to come back. Look at how quickly toxicology screening tests are done in hospital emergency rooms when someone comes in with an overdose. The Coroner and the Beverly Hills Police Department have placed a security hold on the case, so it will be a few weeks before the results are revealed publicly.”

Whitney Died Of Prescription Overdose; The Singer Did Not Drown!

Various media outlets have reported that pop icon Whitney Houston drowned in the bathtub of her hotel suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel after mixing a deadly cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol. Houston is seen leaving her doctor’s office on Tuesday (Feb. 7) in the photo below.

According to gossip website TMZ.com, Houston, 48, was found unresponsive in the bathtub. Her stylist, hairdresser and two bodyguards were among the people in the room at the time. The entourage reportedly grew concerned when Houston didn’t emerge from the bathroom after an hour.

The hairdresser, a female, entered the bathroom and screamed when she saw Houston’s face under the water. A bodyguard ran in and pulled Houston’s lifeless body out of the tub. The source described Houston’s body position as “legs up” as if she slid down the back of the tub under the water.

Her body was reportedly “very cold” when she was pulled out of the tub. Paramedics were called to the room but they were unable to resuscitate the singer. She was pronounced dead at 6:55PM EST.

TMZ.com reports that bottles of prescription anti-anxiety drugs Lorazepam (Ativan), Valium, Xanax and a sleeping medication were found in the hotel room. It is believed that Houston had an adverse effect to the prescription drugs that were mixed with the alcohol already in her system after bingeing on alcohol for two nights in a row.

Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 19, reportedly got into a screaming match with hotel security who barred her from Houston’s room. Bobbi and Houston’s cousin, singer Dionne Warwick, were eventually allowed into the room to see the body.

While Houston’s body lay in her hotel suite, Davis and other celebrities partied in the hotel’s ballroom downstairs. Many fans and critics have expressed anger at Davis for not canceling the party.
